Hi I'm Joe Vickrey

I grew up in California. I love to play music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a musician who love all sorts of music; from reggae to indie rock. I love to spend time with my friends too. I'm always excited when I can make others laugh, even if it is over something small. I'm currently serving on a church mission for two years in Scottsdale, Arizona!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was fourteen, a pair of missionaries came to my family's home. I listened to their lessons and took to heart what they were saying. I studied the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true and I can say that I know it is. No angel ever appeared to me, but I received a knowledge that this church is true through the feelings in my heart and the power of the Holy Ghost. I decided that I would do whatever it took to fulfill what God wanted me to do.

How I live my faith

Every year I accept our local church's challenge to help work twelve hours in our pear orchard to help provide food for those who might need help providing for themselves. I also help clean our church building every other month with a group of other church members. I'm also serving as a full-time missionary, which is exciting for me, because I know that I've been called by a prophet of God and that I'm exactly where I need to be.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Joe Vickrey
A creation testifies of a creator. AS I've seen how beautifully nature works and how well all the elements seem to work together to create life, it shows me that there is a God. Also, some of the things that have in my life, that others might call luck or a coincidence, show me that my Heavenly Father is watching over me and that He is really there. Show more Show less
